Armstrong, Bruyneel and the others face a June 22 deadline to file a written response to the USADA charges, the first step in what could be a months-long process, leading to a hearing before an arbitration panel to hear the evidence.
According to USADA's June 12 letter announcing the charges, "numerous riders" from Bruyneel's teams will testify he either gave them performance-enhancing drugs or encouraged them to use them.
USADA has kept the identity of those riders secret, though former teammates -- and admitted drug users -- Floyd Landis and Tyler Hamilton have gone public with their accusations. Armstrong's attorneys have demanded USADA turn over all evidence, including witness names.
